§ Mr. Perkins
asked the Minister of Education whether he is satisfied that the present system of posts of special responsibility is desired by the greater part of the teachers themselves and that the method of distributing the posts meets with general approval.
§ Mr. Tomlinson:
It is my duty to see that remuneration of teachers is considered by committees consisting of 207W persons appointed by bodies representing local education authorities and teachers respectively, and these committees make representations to me about salary scales for teachers. I have no doubt that the Teachers' Panel of the Burnham Committee is fully informed of the views of the teachers. Provision for posts of special responsibility is made in the current Burnham reports on salaries for teachers in primary and secondary schools and in further education establishments. As the hon. Member knows, the Burnham Committee is sitting at present and I expect that this will be among the questions which they are considering.
